Abstract

In a completely randomized design, 24 (LWY x Desi) cross-bred pigs (15.88kg±1.07) were made into 4 groups to contain 6 males in each group. A basal diet was fed to all the animals. Groups 1 had adlib access to feed (AL) and groups 2, 3 and 4 had feed restriction (FR) upto10, 20 and 30 percent, respectively. Nutrient digestibility, growth performance and carcass traits were studied. During growth phase the digestibility of DM, OM and CP were higher (P
